Phew! What a year it has been for Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries!
Our nationwide network continued to grow with new nurseries opening in Weybridge, Kingston, Southport and our first ever opening north of the border in Glasgow. January 2015 will see the opening of three further nurseries in Irthlingborough, Bromley and Solihull.
The growth maintains our position as the UK’s largest nursery franchise operator, a title we are proud to own.
Possibly the best achievement of the year was the success of those newer nurseries that undertook their first ever Ofsted reports.
All achieved a “good” Ofsted rating with two achieving an almost unheard of “outstanding” rating! So huge congratulations to the owners, management and staff and special thanks to High Wycombe and Highbury Park for their “outstanding” achievement.
The network’s charity fund raising also had another successful year raising much needed funds for their individual charities.
I suppose the HIGHlight was the intrepid exploits of the staff at Wilmslow, where the team scaled the heights of Mount Snowdon to raise close to a £1000 for their charity Millie’s Trust. Even the high winds and showers couldn’t dampen their spirits and well done to deputy manager, Katie, for reaching the summit first in a commendable 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Finally, Monkey Puzzle Southport was trying it’s best to imitate Noah’s Ark as they welcomed their FOURTH set of twins since their opening in July.
So, from everyone at Monkey Puzzle, we would like to wish you all a very happy new year and a most wonderful 2015!
